WHAT MISS CLARA BARTON SAYS OF AN AMERICAN INVENTION.
Constantinople, Feb. 21, 1896.
—When in London the other day I received two packets from the United States embassy, each containing an Electropoise. To-day I received your kind letter and The Journal.Allow me to thank you heartily and gratefully for the splendid little machines. As you remember, I am not altogether a stranger to the virtues of the Electropoise (saw its work in Jacksonville, Fla., in 1888), and I will take great pleasure in passing your offering to afflicted humanity through my medical staff. I feel assured the physicians will avail themselves of such valuable aid.Very sincerely yours,Clara Barton.In reply to a letter asking permission to publish the above, Miss Barton writes
